This morning was rather chilly – threatening to rain but not quite managing it.
We left after breakfast and drove up Mount Macedon.
It was a beautiful drive.
At the top is a huge cross built as a War Memorial.
We were totally freezing so we hoped back into the car and headed down the mountain and over to Hanging Rock.
I did learn though that Major Mitchell was the first white man to climb to the top of the mountain in 1836.
He named it after Phillip of Macedon – Alexander the Great’s father – as he was thinking of the name Phillip at the time – expecting to see Port Phillip Bay fromt he top. Which he did.
